Review:

"Is abundantly illustrated and certainly brings new perspectives on the history of early Rome."
-"The Journal of Indo-European Studies
"In this abundantly illustrated volume, Ross Holloway draws a vivid picture of the vestiges of the past in the Eternal City and its neighborhood. . . . an instructive guide through the earliest remainders of ancient Rome and Latium."
-"The Journal of Indo-European Studies
." . . fills a gap in the English-language literature on early Rome in two important ways. First, it provides an overview of recent and ongoing excavations of sites and . . . of new approaches to the archaeology of the area. Second, Holloway usefully presents the evidence in the context of major discoveries and controversies of the past century. . . . a sound, fairly traditional evidence-based presentation of findings. The main text offers an invaluable summary of recent discoveries from temples, tombs, and houses, and from specific sites that have produced significant material culture in the past quarter century."

From the Back Cover:

The archaeology of early Rome has progressed rapidly and dramatically over the last century. The excavation of the shrine of Aeneas at Lavinium and the report of walls of the Romulean city discovered on the slopes of the Palatine Hill are two of the widely reported major developments of the last quarter century. Less well-known are the richly furnished tombs of the seventh century BC, once known solely from the tombs at Praeneste, and now documented by finds throughout Latium. The largest necropolis of the early Latian Iron Age, some 600 tombs, has been explored at Osteria dell'Osa. In Rome, patrician houses of the sixth century BC have been excavated beside the Sacra Via. New archaic inscriptions, notably that of Publius Valerius from Satricum, have been found, and the authenticity of the inscription once thought to be the earliest example of Latin writing (the graffito of the "Praeneste Fibula") has been challenged. The Archaeology of Early Rome and Latinum fills the need for an English guide to these discoveries and the many controversies resulting from them. In preparation, the author interviewed most of the leading figures in current research on the early periods of Rome and has illustrated the book with over 130 photographs, maps and line drawings.
